Although the Taskbar on Windows 11 has a similar design to the one available on Windows 10, the new version lacks some essential features, including the ability to change the Taskbar size. However, it’s been discovered (via @thebookisclosed) that it’s possible to modify the Registry to change the size of the interface to small, medium, or large.
The only problem is that you have to edit the Registry to adjust the settings to make the Taskbar bigger or smaller.
Change Taskbar size on Windows 11
To change the Taskbar size on Windows 11, use these steps:
Open Start on Windows 11.
Search for regedit and click the top result to open the Registry Editor.
Browse the following path:
Right-click the Advanced key, select New, and click on DWORD (32-bit) Value.
Name the key TaskbarSi and press Enter.
Double-click the newly created DWORD and change its value from 0 to 2 to change the Taskbar icon size to large. The value 0 is for the small size and 1 is for the default icon size.
Click the OK button.
Restart the computer.
Once you complete the steps, the Taskbar will reflect the size you specified on Windows 11.
If you want to revert the changes, you can always follow the same instructions, but in step 4, right-click the TaskbarSi DWORD and select the Delete button.
